Kerr Street Grade Separation - Speers Road to QEW

Design and construction

The detailed design for the Kerr Street widening from Speers Road to just north of the QEW includes the widening the existing two lane roadway to four travel lanes (two northbound and two southbound) along with the construction of a new underpass at the Metrolinx railway line.

The preferred alternative will shift the current alignment westerly in the area immediately adjacent to the Sixteen Mile Creek providing greater separation, including the construction of dual southbound left turn lanes and a right turn lane at Speers Road, northbound and southbound left turn lanes at the new signalized intersection with Shepherd Road, and a northbound left turn lane at the newly signalized intersection with Wyecroft Road.

The detailed design is scheduled to be completed in early 2016.
